The world’s premier mixed mar­tial arts (MMA) pro­moter, Ul­ti­mate Fight­ing Cham­pi­onship, will bring its highly successful brand of hu­man com­bat to Singapore’s In­door Sta­dium in its first live event in Asia this year. While the first few days will fea­ture am­a­teur MMA bouts with re­gional fight­ers in an at­tempt to de­velop lo­cal skill and en­thu­si­asm for the sport, the fi­nal day will bring fans a fully fledged UFC Fight Night, in which some of the best fight­ers from around the world will en­ter the caged oc­tagon. At the top of a main card filled with men is the lone women’s fight, a bout be­tween Bethe Cor­reia of Brazil and Holly Holm, a former UFC cham­pion.
